Your comment about the stream
Your comment about the stream running out from the pond ice made me flash back, for an instant, to my early childhood. We wandered in a big field out back, and on a sunny March day the snow pack was melting. A big puddle was our 'pond' and we were fascinated and entertained by trickling "waterfalls". The lacy ice melting on top of the snow. Just for a moment, I flashed back to that early joyful time of life. I still love a blue sky over white snow, still love ponds and ice and streams.
